Improving People's Lives Through Credit Unions

Our Vision
The National Credit Union Foundation’s vision is making financial freedom achievable through credit unions. At the National Credit Union Foundation (the Foundation), we believe that all consumers should have the education, tools and resources needed to achieve financial freedom. Through Foundation grants and programs, credit unions provide widespread financial education, create greater access to affordable financial services, and empower more consumers to save, build assets, and own homes.

Our Mission

The National Credit Union Foundation is a catalyst to improve people’s financial lives through credit unions.

We are a Catalyst
Whether it’s collaborating on projects, convening resources, igniting passion, honoring leaders, or making financial education meaningful, the Foundation represents credit unions at the national level, kick starting their efforts to strengthen the financial well-being of everyone in their community.

Additionally, the Foundation actively participates and presents at several national financial literacy conferences to represent the good work credit unions already do in providing financial education to members and communities. To help people achieve financial freedom, we work with credit unions, state trade associations and foundations, government agencies, and other partners.

We are indeed a catalyst – a change agent, aggregator, connector, spark, leader – working to improve people’s financial lives through credit unions.
